    Default Man bitten by beheaded rattlesnake

    PROSSER, Wash. (AP) - August 10, 2007 - Turns out, even beheaded rattlesnakes can be dangerous.

    That's what 53-year-old Danny Anderson learned as he was feeding his horses Monday night, when a 5-foot rattler slithered onto his central Washington property, about 50 miles southeast of Yakima.

    Anderson and his 27-year-old son, Benjamin, pinned the snake with an irrigation pipe and cut off its head with a shovel. A few more strikes to the head left it sitting under a pickup truck.

    "When I reached down to pick up the head, it raised around and did a backflip almost, and bit my finger," Anderson said. "I had to shake my hand real hard to get it to let loose."

    His wife insisted they go to the hospital, and by the time they arrived at Prosser Memorial Hospital 10 minutes later, Anderson's tongue was swollen and the venom was spreading. He then was taken by ambulance 30 miles to a Richland hospital to get the full series of six shots he needed.

    The snake head ended up in the bed of his pickup, and Anderson landed in the hospital until Wednesday afternoon.

    Mike Livingston, a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist, said the area where the Anderson's live is near prime snake habitat. But he said he had never heard of anyone being bit by a decapitated snake before.

    "That's really surprising but that's an important thing to tell people," he said. "It may have been just a reflex on the part of the snake."

    If another rattlesnake comes along, Anderson said he'll likely try to kill it again, but said he'll grab a shovel and bury it right there.

    "It still gives me the creeps to think that son-of-a-gun could do that," he said

    Don't know how many snakes Mr. Anderson's killed, but it's been my experience that as long as the brain is still sending out impulses, snakes will still slither, coil and yes even strike even though they appear dead.

    An old wives tale around here is that a snakes not really dead until the sun goes down the day it's killed.

    I've heard that snake heads can survive an hour or so after being decapitated.

    Can't help but wonder if the snake's last thought was, "Take that ya bitch, who owns your ass now, punk...............damn I'm starting to feel lightheaded.......*whew* umm, yeah, walk that bite off, human!!!)

    I've personally seen that happen with a water moccasin down in your neck of the nape HH. Cross Lake as a mater of fact. I almost stepped on a big mo-fo coiled up and hibernating in the fall/stump area of a big cypress tree. We poked it with a stick and it sprung straight up in the air. My Uncle hit it with a stick in mid air, breaking it's back. We chopped it's head off and 15 minutes later it was still watching us and snapping down on a stick.

    Fucking horrifying.

    Irony is I've actually seen more rattlers in Eastern Washington than I have in Arizona. I think the cactus down there gives them a better choice of hiding places. Up here all they got is sagebrush.

    I fookin hate creepy crawlers - snakes, spiders, you name it. That said, can't get enough of shows about them on TV. Like that dude Austin Stephens, Snake Hunter or whatever the name is, the South African photographer that chased snakes.

    Fuckin guy was in FL and fell into a dead hollowed out tree with a Moccasin inside of it. Actually funny as shit. He's poking around, and slips and falls out of site. You hear him shouting and moving, and hear some hissing, and then this moccasin comes flipping up out of the tree, followed by him climbing out, and he proceeds to screw around with it for a while.

    Or Steve Irwin squatting down checking out some Timber Rattlers, then realizing one is right underneath him, between his legs. Priceless look on his face.

    Crazy folk!

    This is the sumbitch you got to watch for around here. We got rattlers too, but this little dandy don't rattle and gives no warning. Looks just like dead leaves lying on the ground.

    I was in WV about three weeks ago and seen two within 6 feet of one another. Was cutting through some real thick brush. The second one was actually off the ground about 3 feet in the brush. Needless to say he wasn't happy to see me standing there with a machete and him in no position to strike.
